Marvel's Iron Fist: 10 Spoiler Free Reactions To First Six Episodes

Danny Rand? More like Danny BLAND, amirite?

Netflix

The final Defender has finally arrived.

After Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Daredevil again, and then Luke Cage, Iron Fist has at last completed its long journey to screen.

Announced along with the other shows back in 2013, by 2015 Marvel had to move to address doubts that they were struggling to bring the series - and its more mystical elements - to life.

It was also supposed to debut before Luke Cage, before releases were switched to capitalise on that character's success in Jessica Jones.

The journey has also been marred by controversy, with the casting of Finn Jones (Game of Thrones) not going down to well with those who felt the role should've went to an actor of Asian descent.

Even if that dust hasn't yet settled, we're moments away from the show's debut, and we've had the chance to see the first six episodes of the season.

They see Danny Rand returning to New York after 15-years away, during which time he was believed to be dead, and coming to reclaim his father's company while also being the Iron Fist, champion of mythical K'un-Lun and sworn enemy of the Hand.

Now, three-and-a-half years after being announced, Iron Fist is here here - but was it worth the wait?
